Theologian Justyn Terry on "Forgiveness"

"To offer forgiveness is to be willing that something
that was owed to me is owed to me no more.  
What I was entitled to get back, I relinquish, 
so that the debt of the other is now my loss.
Their problem is now my problem,
which is an act of substitution.
That is the nature of forgiveness."
